Abstract:This thesis seeks nonviolent solutions to violent conflicts between sides with unevenly distributed power and strength. This thesis also explores the reduction of violence, cooperation, punishment, and revenge. Two disparate theories combine to facilitate this exploration. The first of these is Robert Axelrod's work with the Prisoner's Dilemma, a one shot, binary, mathematical game theory. The thesis then couples the Prisoner's Dilemma with B. F. Skinner's theories of punishment versus reinforcement. Fusing these two bodies of work creates a hybrid theory that selects for the strengths of each theory while minimizing their negative byproducts. This thesis then applies this hybrid theory to the 1999 East Timorese bid for independence from the violent Indonesian attempt at annexation.* *This dissertation is a compound document (contains both a paper copy and a CD as part of the dissertation). The CD requires the following system requirements: Microsoft Office.
